We will present a negative answer to a conjecture of Lyons, related to Furstenberg $x2$-$x3$ conjecture, concerning the existence of a continuous probability measure on the unit circle with large Fourier coefficients on the Furstenberg set {2^p3^q ; p,q \geq 0}. The proof involves rigidity sequences for weakly mixing dynamical systems, and a generalization of a recent construction of such sequences by Fayad and Thouvenot. This is joint work with Catalin Badea.
